The Nashville Film Festival is coming up next week! The Festival was originally founded in 1969 as the Sinking Creek Film Celebration and today is one of the longest-running film festivals in the country. Today, it is known as the Nashville Film Festival and is hosted by the Regal Green Hills Stadium 16 here in Nashville. This annual mid-Tennessee film event attracts film lovers from all over the region and has received accolades by filmgoers and filmmakers alike for its atmosphere and of course, it’s Southern hospitality!
This year, the festival is from April 19-26 and tickets for the public are on sale NOW! The festival has something for everyone. On Thursday, April 19 at 2:00 there will be free short films that are family-friendly and a great way to keep the kids entertained.
